new purchases, bedding, and a wedding

 hi! well we've been busy! mike took last week off, although some of it he spent sick and on the couch...but thankfully we are all well now.  thursday, we drove down to austin to shop and eat at the domain. it's this gorgeous outdoor shopping area with cool, different stores and yummy restaurants.

i got this voluspa candle at luxe apothetique-it's the laguna scent, and it is divine! run and get yourself one and you will think you're at the beach.

i love this cheerful vase i got at anthro...just looks like summer doesn't it?

 and my sweet mom made sadie's bedding for her big girl bed...i picked out some adorable amy butler fabric and gave her a picture of what i wanted and she made it all!!  the monogrammed pillow i already had from her nursery bedding, but i thought i went perfectly with the new bedding.

and probably my fav pillow ever! i told her she should sell her bedding on etsy.

 then yesterday, we drove to north houston (where we used to live) to attend a wedding for dustin, a family friend, and dilenia, his new bride from the dominican.  she is beautiful! a lot of the ceremony was in spanish which was cool.

 my favorite picture of the evening ;) a tired daddy and sadie with her finger up her nose!
she would have jumped right in the pool at the reception had i let her. i think that's why mike and i look so tired because we were running after her the whole night.  but the reception was gorgeous! they had it in the groom's parents backyard surround their pool/patio and had catered fajitas. yum!
and i finally got a picture of mike's family but of course sadie turned her head as we took it!

a fun fun night! we had a party at the park for our congregation tonight, but i'll save those pics for later.
happy sunday.

party and flowers

this weekend we had an anniversary party for mom and les' 3rd anniversary! we made roasted chicken, ham, sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole, salad, cranberry sauce, and rolls. it was delicious!!

for dessert we ordered the absolute best strawberry cake you will ever eat at a bakery called simply delicious. yum!

here is the dessert table
 the cake
 the most beautiful flower arrangement that my uncle got for them
 presents lined up by the fireplace and of course  you can't have a party without balloons, right?
 mom and les

 peggy and sadie belle
 opening present (with sadie helping ;)

it was such a fun evening to be all together and enjoy good food and fun!

and for the last 3 years i've taken pictures of mike and sadie by this beautiful bush in our front yard that only blooms for a few weeks in march. i think it's called bridal wreath?

it's amazing to see how much she has grown in each picture (and yet mike doesn't look a day older. you're welcome honey!)

teeny tiny baby, looking a little bored with the whole picture thing!
 busy 1 year old not wanting to be still for the picture

my two sweeties make my world so happy!

catch up {we are alive}

i haven't had the energy or desire to blog lately. we are on week 3 of sadie being sick! she is usually my healthy girl but since the first of february she has had a ear infection, the measles (!), a yeast infection, and now a bad cold (with vomiting :()  i am SO ready for her to feel better! besides just dealing with a sick toddler, i worry so much about her when she doesn't feel well. i guess every mom does.
but enough negativity...

in the midst of her sickness, she was feeling well enough to go to her very first dance class on monday. it was the cutest thing! it's a mommy and me creative dance class, and we really enjoyed it.  here she is before her class...

 i loved this one of her cutie little profile!
 she also got to enjoy a yummy strawberry cupcake last night (and got it all over her!!)
 last weekend, mike and i bought her a "castle" as she calls it...endless hours of fun with this
 and today, she got to help her daddy in the yard, spreading mulch...she was so proud!!
and a few funny things she has said lately:

daddy: "sadie, how was your nap?"
sadie: "it was awesome."

sadie (pretending): "mimi is calling-she needs my help.  daddy i will put her on feaker (speaker) so you can talk. don't worry mimi i will rescue you."

she calls breakfast "bresixx"- i love that!

she calls the backyard "backlard"

she calls her little dot paints "doc doc docs"

have a great weekend!
